Drum Support Roller - for square ported models

This drum support roller is used for square-ported model clothes dryers. It has a metallic bearing in its center. The drum support roller holds the drum in place while it rotates on the support wheels. You may have a faulty or damaged roller if your dryer will not start or tumble, takes too long to dry clothes, or starts making loud noises. This part is sold individually; however, rollers tend to wear at the same rate, so it is suggested that both should be replaced at the same time. Customers have ranked this repair as easy and should take 15-30 minutes to complete.

I noticed that one of the guide wheels that held the drum in place was sheared off. I took the new d... read more

I use brake cleaning fluid (Spray Can from Auto Zone about $1.45) to remove old glue. Used spray contact cement (Elmer's about 4.50 at Ace) and sprayed the panel and gasket surfaces and let dry. I th... read more

Wasn't the belt!! Changed it anyway. Should have come here earlier. That mistake added several days to the repair waiting for a second batch of the right parts. Became a pro at taking the dryer apart and reassembling, though! Easy job, just take your time and mark your wires, if you need to.
Followed other people's excellent instructions. Clean out al... read more
